There's a fine line between a manager tinkering for the sake of it and one who makes slight adjustments to take account of the opposition. Without wanting to get too carried away, I get the feeling that Laudrup is the perfect combination of romantic and pragmatist.
Showing a chalkboard of Swansea's passing yesterday, even for just the first half would be just a mass of lines and hard to take much from. The chalkboard below shows the activity up to the scoring of the 2nd goal and shows the intricate passing down the right ultimately creating space down the left from which the goal scoring passes came from.
